This is a past event.

Tuesday, May 18, 2021 at 3:30pm to 4:00pm

Virtual Event

Children with attention and behavioral challenges such as ADHD can often fall behind peers with similar academic ability levels. Teachers report that training and information about supporting students with attention and behavioral difficulties is often lacking from their initial training. In this webinar, Dr. Merrill will describe the science behind supporting the learning of students with ADHD or attention and behavioral difficulties. Attendees will learn actionable and efficient strategies to support students’ learning and behavior.

About the presenter:

Dr. Brittany Merrill is a postdoctoral researcher and clinician at the Center for Children and Families in WNY. Dr. Merrill joined the team in Buffalo in 2020 and was a doctoral student at FIU working at the CCF in Miami until 2019. Her domains of research are the evidence-based treatment of childhood ADHD as well as the long-term outcomes of ADHD into adulthood. Her work centers around the goals of 1) improving the academic functioning of children with ADHD, and 2) improving the reach and availability of evidence-based behavioral treatments. Toward these goals, she is currently developing technology-assisted behavioral interventions targeting academic functioning and homework management among children with ADHD.
